Bengaulru: While political memes have been around for quite some time, chat groups and social media pages across the state are currently having a field day with catchy one-liners, jokes and memes about the Kumarswamy's mini mini powder comment. It has gained the same popularity as Nikhil Yellidiyappa meme ahead of the Lok Sabha polls in Karnataka last year. Kumaraswamy while speaking about the episode of Adithya Rao, an engineer and MBA graduate planting live explosive at Mangaluru International Airport, had said that it was not a bomb but a mere firecracker with white 'mini mini' powder used in crackers. "It was not a bomb, it was white 'mini mini powder' used for making firecrackers," former CM had said. In Kannada, mini mini implies something that is very glittery. It also means silver foil used to embellish sweets! The powder used in fire works, that causes minor star burst like explosion is also called 'mini mini powder'.
It may be recalled that Kumaraswamy and his son Nikhil Kumaraswamy had accepted the popularity, with a smile. Now one may have to wait and watch how HDK responds to 'mini mini powder' meme, which is trending on the social media platform.
